Hinds CC Carla McCulloch nursing scholarship awarded to Richland resident

Tanner Gray of Richland is following in his mother’s footsteps, with the help of the Carla McCulloch Scholarship from Hinds Community College.

Tanner Gray of Richland is the recipient of the annual Carla McCulloch nursing scholarship at Hinds Community College. With him are family members, from left, Michael Gray, Angie Gray, Tanner Gray and sister Brooklyn Gray.

Gray, 19, a second semester Associate Degree Nursing student at Hinds’ Rankin Campus, is the recipient of the annual Carla McCulloch Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded each year to a Hinds second semester nursing student to help pay for the second year of school.

“My mom (Angie Gray) has been a nurse for over 20 years. It has encouraged me to want to help people too. We still get Christmas cards from people she has helped. I’d like to do that for my ministry,” said Gray, who wants to be a nurse anesthetist.

The scholarship was created by Larry and Carol McCulloch, formerly of Magee but now residents of Roanoke, Va., in memory of their daughter Carla, a Simpson Academy graduate who was a Hinds nursing student at the time of her death in an April 1991 accident.

The award is made annually to a second semester nursing student who demonstrates the caring and enthusiasm for nursing that Carla embodied. She was a dedicated nursing student who took care of loved ones but also had a fun-loving streak.

“She was all of those things. She was very funny and didn’t mean to be. I called her the resident blonde in our family. She didn’t get why she was funny sometimes,” Carol McCulloch told Hinds Community College Rankin Campus nursing students in making the presentation to Gray. “You don’t just get up one morning, as Carla said, and decide to be a nurse and, oh boom, it comes. You’ve already been there and seen that and done that.”

The McCulloch family presented the annual Carla McCulloch nursing scholarship to Tanner Gray of Richland. Pictured are family friend Carla Smith of Madison, left, Carol McCulloch, Gray and Larry McCulloch.

Larry McCulloch said Gray embodies many of the qualities of his daughter. “He excels academically and believes that a dedicated work ethic is a must. He doesn’t think he has all the answers and works very closely with others. And really importantly, he believes that the field of nursing is a calling,” he said.

Gray said his parents “have raised me to be an encourager. I do like to encourage people. It gives me a sense of fullness when I can make someone’s day or make someone smile.”

To the McCulloch family, he said, “it seems your Carla had a lot of those qualities.”

Tanner Gray awarded Carla McCulloch Scholarship.

Hinds CC Early Childhood Education building renamed for former director, longtime educator

Hinds CC Early Childhood Education building renamed for former director, longtime educator

JACKSON – For years, when people asked Dr. Mary Ann Greene what she did for a living, her answer spoke to the lives she helped to nurture to a solid footing in school and life.

“I always answered, ‘I work for the little children, and Hinds pays my salary’,” she said.

That selfless service to the children of the community was recognized Friday, March 31 when Hinds Community College honored Greene, of Clinton, who retired from Hinds in 2016 after 33 years in multiple roles in the college’s Early Childhood Education Technology program, by renaming the program’s building on the Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center in her honor.

“This moment in time is much bigger than I am,” said Greene, during the program as she thanked Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse, Dr. Leroy Levy, dean of the campus, her husband, Dr. Roger Greene, a professor of Christian Studies at Mississippi College, family and friends. “This moment in time is for the Early Childhood faculty and staff, and, finally, our graduates, who are changing children’s lives forever.”

The event was held as part of Hinds’ yearlong celebration of the college’s 100th anniversary.

“I think it is most appropriate that we are here today during our Centennial naming this building after a lady who has dedicated her life to serving others,” said Jackie Granberry, executive director of the Hinds Community College Foundation. “Because of the love and devotion she has shown to the little children and to those teaching the little children, her legacy will live on.”

Greene served the campus as an instructor, Early Childhood Education program chairperson and director of the Laboratory Child Development Center. The building that now bears her name was built in 1998 and houses all the program’s curriculum-specific classrooms and office space.

“She’s one of the pioneers in Early Childhood Education in the state of Mississippi,” said Muse. “She spent over 30 years building this program here, from scratch.”

She holds a bachelor’s degree in music from Mississippi University for Women and a master’s degree in early childhood education from Mississippi College. Her doctorate is from Jackson State University, where she was a summa cum laude graduate. She also holds a master’s of religious education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Her influence on education programs for children in Mississippi and regionally is extensive, having led numerous workshops for the Mississippi Department of Education and coordinated programs for Early Education Week for the agency, as well as for state education departments in Alabama and Florida. Her civic life has included serving as president of the Friends of the Clinton Library and Clinton Music Club. She is a past vice president of the Mississippi College Faculty Wives Club.

“We cannot think of a much more deserving individual to have a building named after,” said Levy, during the program, held under the drive-up to the facility featuring Greene’s former coworkers and, in one case, a student who went on to work for her.

“Upon graduating from Hinds in 2009, I stated that one day, I would love to come back and work for you,” said Gayle Miles, a lab assistant at the Early Childhood Education Lab. “As you can see, the dream became a reality.”

The program featured several other lighthearted moments in honor of Greene, who “did things extraordinary,” said Dr. Ericka Davis, who succeeded Greene as director of the program at JATC.

During her address, Davis showed several items her coworkers knew her by, including a coffee mug and a short, stubby pencil.

“Every file folder in my office is a hand-me-down from when Dr. Greene was in my office,” she said. “These are the things she left behind, but it’s also things that move us forward as we continue to be a beam of light in our community and in the lives of students and children we serve.”

Greene was also honored by some of the children in the Early Childhood Technology program, who expressed their appreciation in the form of an oft-repeated quote from literature.

“Dr. Greene, I may forget what you said, but I will not forget how you made me feel…loved,” they said, after which she hugged her tiny bosses one more time.

Servant for children forever honored at Hinds CC Jackson Campus

“This is the first time at Hinds Community College has won in any category at SROW,” said Steven Jones, associate director of Student Housing and Residence Life at the Raymond Campus. “This is a major accomplishment for our orientation leaders because SROW attracted nearly 2,200 students and professionals from more than 80 universities in 10 states.”

Students who attended the conference were Denicia Diew, of Yazoo City; Abigail West, of Hamilton, in Monroe County; Amber Gladney, of Jackson; Brinkley Branch, of Raymond; Evan Jefferson, of Jackson; Aliyyah Blakely, of Flint, Mich.; Myia Harris, of Clinton; Shantianna Thames, of Louisville, Miss.; LaDaysha Washington, of Mendenhall.

The Hinds contingent’s 4-minute skit was judged for plot/theme development and how it was connected to the orientation program. Students portrayed characters on campus who would seek assistance from student services.

The event was put on by NODA, an international association of education professionals, students, faculty and related organizations which promotes the fields of orientation, transition and retention.
